Vision

To achieve the excellence in Pharmacology to be recognized internationally

Mission

Provide teaching, research and academic service in Pharmacology at international standard and serve national strategic plan.

Our programs

The department of Pharmacology offers programs of study which lead to either the M.Sc. Or the Ph.D. degrees. The aim of the M.Sc. and PhD programs is to provide in-depth pharmacology knowledge and research experience in order to develop individuals for research careers in academic, industrial and healthcare provision settings.

Program Specification
Our graduates in both majors are required to have skills to perform pharmacological research review, presentation, discussion, literature criticism and practice experimental methods in pharmacology. Additionally, our programs emphasize the importance of academic integrity and ethics in both research and practice.

Medical pharmacology
Systems pharmacology

Curriculum

Course Specification
The course in molecular and cellular basis of biomedicine provides principles of cell functions and biomedical methods for pharmacological application. Courses in basic and clinical pharmacology as well as drugs used in various systems offer fundamental of knowledge application to pharmacological practices. For Systems pharmacology, the courses will provide analytic skills including quantitative and qualitative to handle big data. Computational concepts in biomolecular dynamics and signaling cascade in biomedical problems are in need of precision medicine. The graduates are also required to understand advanced computational principle and have skills to analyze and visualize complex high-throughput omics data. All subjects have learning objectives, teaching methods such as lecture, small group discussion, presentation, as well as class references. The assessment was designed according to learning outcome of each class, for example the level of participations, rubric scoring system in evaluating of presentation, and completeness of activities.
